Just before 8am Wednesday (Feb. 19), the Bremer County Sheriff was called to a traffic accident in the 2800 block of Highway 93, west of Sumner.

An eastbound truck went out of control on the ice-covered road, entered a ditch and rolled, ejecting the driver, identified as 18 year old Isabelle Linn Meyer of Sumner.

Meyer was taken to the Sumner hospital where she later died of her injuries.

The Bremer County Sheriff was assisted at the scene by the Iowa State Patrol, Iowa DOT, Sumner Fire Department, Sumner Ambulance and Bremer County Dispatch.
